Is Arsenal’s most fashionable Russian off to Italy?
It’s been a week in which Harrison Ford’s movie career faced a serious litmus test – could a Han Solo movie premiere still pull in the A Listers? In short, yes. Yes it could. Gaffney was there. So was Andre. Michelle Bass, McKeith, Katona. Plus in amongst the glittering array stood a busty thing from that show about people in Essex talking over one another about their complicated lives. Her name is Maria Fowler, and she used to go out with a footballer (pictured). You’ve still got it, Ford.
Here’s what else we know about the world, thanks to newspapers like The Sun, The Metro, The Guardian, and others…
Regardless of his dip in form, The Spoiler will forever be a huge Arshavin fan – thanks in no small part to his personal blog, which has provided some of the greatest internet highlights of the last twelve months. Hence, it’s through tear-sheened eyes and with trembling typing fingers that we report that Arsenal’s dinky little fashion designer has been linked with a move to Italy. Juventus to be precise.
His agent, Dennis Lachter, spoke these words as we welled up like Jose Mourinho at a Wesley Sneijder lecture:
“There’s a possibility of Andrei’s move to Juventus.”
“But two things can prevent this deal – first, Arsenal can win the Premier League this year, which is a dream of any footballer.”
“And second is the financial power of Juve, as Arsenal are demanding no less than £20million to release Arshavin.”
In other hot North London news, the whisper on the street is that Gareth Bale’s astonishingly good form has been tenting robes in the Man City boardroom, and now they want him. In the summer. Whatever it takes.
Mancini said this:
“He will be our strongest target.”
And Adebayor is going to Madrid or something.
That is all.
